I’m new here, and came across this site through a Google search.
It seems like this is the kind of thing that some of you here may be interested in.
I saw a post on a Reddit sub earlier that suggested the Etsy Sellers in the subreddit Google the phrase “Etsy Karen Check”
Karen Check used to be a 3rd party tool that is no longer operational due to Etsy.com changing their API.
I Googled “Etsy Karen Check” to make sure that the tool was still not operational, and the top Google result was a link to checketsy.com
I went to this link and the page was an attempt to get Etsy sellers to download a program to use, similar to the former program that is no longer operational.
Being the suspicious type of guy I did a WhoIs search on checketsy.com and the data looked really fishy, including the country of Iceland.
I then Googled the phone number in the WhoIs data and the top result was a link to a Department of Homeland Security document that contained the same phone number, but not the suspicious URL.
This document was about other URLs that had ransomware download links.
SDo, when I found this site I figured I would post the info, and maybe there was something that can be done to get the site removed.
I have already reported the site to DHS, but I have no idea if they will look into it.
